Charger specialist Anker launches a very promising 3D printer on Kickstarter



Kickstarter Rule #1: Never support a 3D printer project. No project has worked as sold, if it ever got delivered.
Kickstarter Rule #2: If the performance is too good to be true, it’s not.
250mm/s is 5x the speed of an Ender 3 while it’s squarely the architecture of the Ender 3 here. A CoreXY could have been possible, but not with a plate which must move in Y and which therefore must bear the weight of the part being printed.


BALA BALA all that!!! they make their first printer and imagine themselves overtaking the cador who are on their 30th printer! but of course NAIFS and KIKSTARTER and more!
you don’t have to be half a knot to swallow so much aberration!


I’m skeptical like the previous comments except that I wouldn’t be so extremist… The snapmaker has released its multi-function printer and you can buy it quite easily and yet it comes out of a Kickstarted base


Yeah finally … it only took an Apple iPhone to run Nokia, which had a bunch of them to its credit too eh … the naive here are not those we believe.
Afterwards I don’t know if she will be better or not, but for now they have the benefit of the doubt.


To see the reality in a few months, but at least there are no no-names behind this project.
Anker makes good stuff I think (certainly less complex than a 3D printer).


we don’t compare apple to anker!! and apple did not go through kikstarmefesse


And why not ? At the time, Apple wasn’t much, eh… but it didn’t matter, it was above all an example.


Do not underestimate Anker either, certainly it is not Apple, but it is still a box that works well, which now greatly exceeds one billion dollars in annual turnover, with good cash reserves. , little debt… And therefore the means to invest in R&D for new products.
As for going through Kickstarter, it has become a habit for some companies, not really finance their product, but to benefit from the exposure offered by KS and to have the opportunity to exchange with potential buyers before the product is finalized, to adjust it as well as possible to expectations. Some boxes thus pass ALL their new products through KS or equivalent, while they already have dozens of products to their credit.
We are clearly here in such a case of “diverted” use of Kickstarter, since the campaign objective was set at barely $50,000, which is therefore clearly not an objective aimed at financing the development and industrialization of the product…


Given the size of their box and the money generated, do you really think that Anker needs to go through Kickstarter? It stinks of comm’ gratos especially


It stinks of freebies mostly
Freebies, no. Do not forget that KS takes 5% commission and that in addition Anker makes an effort on the sale price to backers (43% to the first 200, 34% to the next 2000, 21% to the next 4000).


So an innovative printer without any innovation is completely crazy!!
To boast of 250mm/s on an outdated and open Cartesian system we are indeed and only talking about PLA…


Why only PLA? this type of printer prints other materials (ABS, PET, etc.) without any problem.
